5th Anniversary DiGeSt


The Journal of Diversity and Gender Studies (DiGeSt) is celebrating its fifth anniversary with an evening of lectures and discussion on Wednesday, 25 April 2018 at 6.30 p.m. in Filmzaal Plateau (Paddenhoek 3, 9000 Gent). All are welcome!


  • 18.30: Introduction by Prof. dr. Marysa Demoor (Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Ghent University, founder of DiGeSt)
  • 18.45: Prof. dr. David Paternotte (Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences, Université libre de Bruxelles, member of the advisory board of DiGeSt) “LGBTIQ Studies in Belgium: Diversifying the Canon?”
    This lecture will look at the slow and long development of LGBTIQ studies in Belgium, before highlighting some of the key challenges for the future of this field of research.
  • 19.15: Prof. dr. Sarah Bracke (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, University of Amsterdam, member of the advisory board of DiGeSt) “The blind spot of an old dream of symmetry.” Gender, Diversity, and Neoliberalism
    This lecture is dedicated to taking stock of the possibilities, and therefore also thinking the limits, of the analytical work that gender and diversity do in our times and political economy. It considers in particular some of the central notions – like gender and diversity, but also privilege and identity – that contemporary gender studies have come to rely on.
  • 19.45: Questions, discussion and wrap-up
    Moderated by Dr. Birgit Van Puymbroeck (Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Ghent University, current editor-in-chief of DiGeSt)
